how do i get it?
Reading is fundamental
You rode the short bus didn't you?
didn't have to be such Dick's about it..
There's a comedian in every crowd. That was funny but some people are new to technology and don't know how to do much with their new device. (Old)
The thing is some people read de first line and then ask for a shortcut to the last one! Thats why the are so many foruns with lots of people ready to explain the basic. Some of us like the news but forget news are not only a title! And welcome to the www world!
Holly crap been waiting a long time for this. !!!
Holly crap, is she related to Lady Caca? Lol
Cerberus. Especially on a rooted device.
But you have to pay for it. I'd rather use Prey. Or this, considering the fact thah this is free.
Come on dude! It's $1 per life! It's a toilet paper to expensive for you or what?
We needed this for a long time. Good job Google.
I agree. This is a great addition to Android and its free.
I got "Personal Notes" also known as "Android Lost"
I wonder too...
Question is, can it be disabled easily? I'm rooted and use a location that is built into partition that can't be deleted.
What do you use to achieve that?
BS and fairy dust. You can't place an apk in a partition that isn't labeled for them. Ie: You can't place Cerberus on the radio/modem partition and it run, if you could even place the file there at all.
Will it still works if a person wipes your phone?
Nop, that's exactly what i don't like with all this apps. You need to be logged in with your account. If somebody steal your phone, it's enough to logout your account and you officially lost the phone :)) They need to make an app to track IMEI, so the phone will be tracked by the owner whatever the burglar makes: formating, flashing etc
Agreed.This will however make it a lot scarier to buy a phone second hand..
I think this is meant for lost phones, not stolen phones :-)
At last good job Google
I think that the app it wood be great, but it should be protected in some kind of way so it will be hard to disable it. most of the company's Samsung, Sony and others have made some kind of that application, but its very elementary to force stop it.
The app "android lost" does the same. So nothing new!
The avast! Security app on my phone already does this.It also emails me the location before the battery goes flat. I can send it a series of SMS codes from registered phones (my wife's) to make it alarm, track it, or wipe it.
Every samsung android device has the same service. But its good to know that Google is expanding the same service for other people that don't wanna more 3rd party apps running
This feature is out there for Android devicea for years. For example, Avast antivirus app allows you to do all of the above PLUS provide virus protection; all for free. And there are many other free/paid apps with these features. The only difference now will be that you wouldnt need to install a seperate app. Google itself is a little late to integrate these features, but atleast they are doing it now.
I hope it works accurately.Thanks Google anyway.
Using trackandprotect for years, no internet connection required as it goes over secure silent sms. Whatever google is doing i'll keep this on as well
Question? If your phone can't be located, how can it be wiped?
I remember being able to see my phone's location using latitude on the computer from another Google account I shared my location with !¡!¡!¡!
And they're canceling latitude somewhere this month.... So that's not gonna work anymore
What if battery runs out? Common problem with all smartphones which consume a lot of battery power.

Comes that service end of this month also for german users?
Samsung Has something similar already.
Just checked the security settings on my phone. Android Device Manager is visible in the device administrators section. I checked my apps and widgets and there is no ADM anywhere on my phone except for Security/DeviceAdministrators. I am assuming that if I check the box beside ADM, the app will appear in my app drawer and I will then be able to access the settings?.......waiting patiently for google to publish instructions to the Android site.Has anyone here enabled Android Device Manager yet?
You also have. lookout to android
Agreed. This is more suited for lost/misplaced phones. Cerberus it's still the best way to go. Cool feature though.
IS THIS TRUE PLEASE HELP ME THIS IS my stolen samsung android mobile Imei no: 357649045357731any other details ask me im waiting :-)
